Swifts, swallows and martins

In the past few days there has been quite a lot of swift, swallow and house martin activity around FAUNA – a great opportunity for those who sometimes struggle to tell these species apart to get good looks at them all at the same time!

Also a common whitethroat has taken up territory in the large tree by the boardwalk near School Pond and can be seen and heard rattling out his fabulous song. I still haven’t heard any sedge warblers on the reserve, despite there being good numbers nearby – has anyone else seen or heard any this year?
